Wow, gosh, an award!

I woke up this morning, went to my computer, and was absolutely floored by a wonderful, wonderful surprise. I've been nominated for an award! It was even more touching, knowing that it was from artists whom I wholeheartedly admire and aspire to be like one day: Eric Barclay, Edrian Thomidis, Roberta, and Carli. I am humbled by their art. Thanks, guys, you really did make my heart sing and cry at the same time -- in a good way.

The rules of accepting are as follows:-

1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

*sigh* It was so hard to whittle my list of nominees down to 7. There are so many artists who inspire me, so many who are deserving of awards. Well, the rules say "at least", so I'm going to push it and add an 8th.

And 9th.

I could add to this list forever, so here goes before it goes on forever:

Connie Martin
Linda Sarah
Raluca C.
Ms. Froggie
Juan Carlos Frederico
May Y. Chan
Deborah Ross
Alberta & Ava

Please visit their sites and be prepared to be awed by their fantastic talent! THANK YOU!

Bella! What a total and happy surprise. First of all, I'm really pleased you like my site, since at my stage (OK, age) it is important to me that my work entertains now! My 'career' paths are not very long. Initially I thought I'd have to get my list together of my 'winners' right away, but it occurred to me that I'd miss sites later in the week. Know that I am 'on the case' and delighted with your interest.
